Scanning Function Restoration - KO Ginga Spark

Implanted the circuits from a spare DX Victory Lancer recently bought into my KO Ginga Spark... Not really a perfect restoration, as it still did not say the "Ultra Live!!!!", it is still good enough for me... Yes, there simply is no more space for any more sound circuit board.. anyway, am happy... took 3 days to do this... with lots of cursing and sighing... hahahaha...

More March Haul...

More stuff... First up, the Candy Toy version for Shakariki Sports Gashat, bought from Taobao.com... Costs approximately SGD 10.85...


Already fixed up a green LED but effect is still not good, and considering to put in another white LED to shine the coloured side... And first time finish completely the candy that comes with the toy... nice... hahahaha...


These 2 DX AkaNinger Shurikens were bought at the Takashimaya Collectible Toys Fair on Sunday... Cost SGD10 each... 1 for me and 1 for my little nephew...


And finally found the Ultraman Ginga Strium Spark Doll... After numerous failed attempts at Kiddy Palace, OGs, I finally found one at Takashimaya... initially did not see this piece as it is hidden in the innermost corner of the bunch of hanging spark dolls... I made a few trips back to the section, hoping to find one and was about to give up, then decided to go back 1 last time to search, and ... IT'S THERE !!!!! Very happy... Costs SGD 9.95...

Takashimaya Collectible Toys Fair 2017... and Haul...

Takashimaya Collectible Toys Fair is back... as usual, let the pictures do the talking...


























And my haul (2 days)... surprisingly bought a lot, as I had none last year... Prices are on the tag... DX Sherpherdon / Shepardon Saber...


DX XDevizer for my little nephew... This is the "upgraded" version which includes some strips of Live Signs to scan... Oh, this is gotten from the 4th story in Toys Section, the version which is selling in the Fair is the normal Japanese version and costs SGD40...


Day 2 (today) haul...


Ultraman X and Ultraman Victory spark dolls... And they are also bought on the 4th floor Toys Section... Can't find Ultraman Ginga's...


Gotten 2 DX Victory Lancers... the extra one I intend to put the circuit into my KO Ginga Spark...


The DX NinninBlue shuriken (don't know what is the proper name, don't care...) ... for myself, since my little nephew has no likes for the Ninninger...


And DX Strium Brace, just for fun, hahahaha.... the golden wheel seem to be too loose and every slight movement will trigger the internal switch to activate...


... anyway, the Live Sign is placed too deep in for the DX Victory Lance to scan, so I use foamed-double-sided-tape to stick the Live Sign, making it sit higher for the DX Victory Lancer to be able to reach and scan...


Also bought some Hello Kitty stuff for my little niece... very cute...

Sound Restoration - KO Perfect Zecter ( Kamen Rider Kabuto )

Did not take pictures of the restoration process, but basically it is just stuffing in sound-recording circuits with lots of switches soldered in configurations to get the desired effects.  A short clip below shows the details of the KO Perfect Zecter ( Kamen Rider Kabuto series ) that I bought many years ago, and after the restoration of the various key sounds found in an DX version counterpart, namely the normal shooting,slashing, combining all Zecters, and the 2 super attack sounds for sword mode and gun mode when all Zecters are attached. Thanks for watching!!!

December Purchase (1) - DX Zyuoh Buster, Goton Yo Shuriken, DX Giri Giri ChamBara Gashat, DX Drago Knight Hunter Z Gashat, DX Let's Go Ichigou Gashat

Haul from Taobao finally came... and I learnt an important lesson : Never buy through ezBuy agent after October... they thought they can handle with all the promotions they throw out since the 10.10, but they are proven very wrong, either too short in manpower than anticipated, or their current SOP is not designed to handle such big flow, and the good old quality standard never came back even till now... sigh... Anyway, count myself lucky that I got most of the items ordered... Here goes (for Transformers and such items, visit my other blog My KO Transformers and Such ):

First up is the DX Zyuoh Buster... A bit of surprise to find it so small... of course the biggest nitpick will be the small butter-knife-like blade, hahahaha... May do some modifications if got time... Cost about SGD32.05, round up to the nearest 5 cents, hahahaha...



Next is a loose Goton Yo Shuriken... Costs SGD12.65... This is the version that has mainly only sound effects and only 1 line when button at bottom is pressed longer...


Next, the DX Giri Giri ChamBara Gashat for my little nephew... Cost about SGD31.55 ...


And could not resist these 2 (types of) gashats: DX Drago Knight Hunter Z (Cost about SGD64.75) and Let's Go Ichigou (Cost about SGD28) gashat(s)!!!... yeap, 1 of the DX Drago Knight Hunter Z is for my little nephew...


So today make up my mind to spray paint the DX Drago Knight Hunter Z to gold.. actually it looks more like copper... hmmm... conned by the spray paint label...


Anyway, looks so much better than the original plastic colour!!! hahahaha...
